Why did you choose Bellus?
Of all the beauty schools I researched, I chose Bellus because they offered a lot of expertise and knowledge about the beauty industry. All of their staff is talented, patient and very creative. What is your Five-year goal?
I hope doing something in the makeup world. My dream job would be working on horror movie sets doing special FX makeup.
The best part about doing makeup, for me, is it feels like an escape from the world. It isn’t like a regular job where you sit down at a desk and stare at a screen. My job is constantly evolving and changing every day. One day I’m working on a movie set doing blood and gore and the next day I’m getting a bride ready to walk down the isle. I couldn’t imagine pursuing a career that I didn’t have a passion for.
“The teachers were amazing! Without Bellus, I wouldn’t have the rewarding life I have today. School was something I looked forward to every single day. I can’t believe I have a job that I love going to every day.”
“For the past year I have been working on super-yachts in Spain as a massage therapist for billionaires and have loved every second of it! I don’t know what I would’ve done without Bellus’ training and expertise.”
“I love how hands-on the nail program is at Bellus. I am a visual and hands-on learner and I appreciated the time and focus on my advancement throughout the program. I would definitely recommend Bellus Academy to anyone interested in beauty and wellness education, especially the nail program!”
“The program and educators in Make-up Artistry are exceptional. The curriculum was so well designed that each day I couldn’t wait to get to school and begin the next step in learning high-end makeup. I feel very comfortable after taking this class to apply for a job anywhere in makeup, including a Hollywood studio, theater, photography or in a high-end salon and spa.”
“As a cosmo crossover, the Barbering Program was not only an excellent way to brush up on the basics, but also the best way to take my career to the next level. The staff was so helpful in every aspect and I highly recommend the program.”
